Key research provider: Food Bytes
Publication date: Friday, June 28, 2019

What was it all about?

This investment, which ran during 2019, reviewed the latest evidence-based health and nutrition benefits of Australian brown, red and white onions. This information will be used to inform future Hort Innovation Onion Fund marketing activities, particularly the development of new claims and messages that the industry can use around onions, in various forms of education and outreach activities. The key claims are also available to industry, and the information will be used to further educate health professionals such as dietitians, GPs, fitness trainers and naturopaths about the benefits of onions.
